With christmas coming up what better than getting your children a Yamaha instrument to learn? We will have a look at how children’s development can be improved through learning a musical instrument; and these are some of the reasons why I asked Leo which instrument he wanted to play and get him into it at an early age. Drums are one of the best instruments for starters and can easily progress onto more advanced instruments from there. A musical instrument from Yahama is #MoreThanAGift, it can be crucial for reaching developmental milestones.
Leo’s music lessons
If you follow us on social media you will see that Leo has very recently starting drumming lessons. He’s only had a few lessons so far but is doing amazingly! His memory skills are developing faster than I thought they would and he is picking up the rhythm easily.
Here’s some photos of Leo playing the drums:
How music can aid children’s development:
Hand eye coordination
Ability to practice self expression
Motor skills (fine and gross)
Strengthening memory skills
Language and communication
Social and emotional development
Mathematical development through counting notes
I remember doing music lessons back when I was at school; and I only ever remember my school using Yamaha instruments. Yamaha instruments have been around for 130 years and they are still going from strength to strength. It all started in 1887 when Torakusu Yamaha built his first reed organ.
Yamaha have developed numerous instruments over the years and maintained their quality to a high standard. Instruments such as; pianos; guitars; drums; brass and woodwind; amongst many others! Yamaha has built instruments which sound great, look great, and can be transported easily. Yamaha instruments are great not only for progressive children playing instruments, but also for entry level children like Leo too! This is where you can find your local Yahama vendor.
So which instrument do you think your child would choose?
